Just In: FAAN refutes report of Looming Insecurity in Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos


 

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, FAAN, has refuted a report published by Leadership Newspaper, headlined: Insecurity Looms As Okada Riders Take Over Lagos Airport”, saying:  There is no Looming Insecurity in Murtala Muhammed Airport “, Lagos and “the picture of Okadas attached to the online story is not that of the MMA or any other Nigerian airport”.

 

In a press release dropped on its verified twitter handle few minutes ago and obtained by Fresh Angle International, the management of FAAN, emphasized that the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos is safe and secure.

 

The press released signed by the General Manager, Corporate Affairs, FAAN, Henrietta Yakubu (Mrs.) added: “FAAN will like to use this opportunity to re-emphasise that commercial motorcycling around the airport axis has been prohibited, and remains so, as indicated by the various signages within and around the airport corridor.

 

“Enforcement of this policy has also been intensive and comprehensive. In the year 2021, a total of 69 motorcycles were confiscated and transferred to the Lagos State Government for crushing by the Aviation Security Department.

 

“Additionally, a good number of motorcycles have been seized again and will soon be transferred to Lagos State Government for crushing.

 

“FAAN has a standing committee comprising officials from AVSEC and other security agencies that are constantly patrolling to arrest erring operators, with a view to putting a final stop to this menace.

 

“Finally, while we reassure our customers that the Murtala Muhammed Airport is safe and secure, we also plead with our esteemed stakeholders to please desist from deliberately spreading false and misleading information about our airports and our industry. It is not in our national interest”.
